Do you have questions about anxiety, like:
“What is Anxiety?”,
“Why do I suddenly have anxiety?”
“How does Anxiety work in the brain and body?”
“How can we manage it?” or even
“How can I help those I love who have anxiety?”.
In this talk, psychotherapist and speaker Matthew Swartz, LMSW helps walk you through a basic understanding of anxiety, how the brain works, and how to reduce stress and anxiety in the short and long term. The video begins with an introduction for Christian Audiences (the talk was held at a church), examining bible quotes that discuss anxiety. For those who are looking to move into the science to start, skipping to “13:00” in the Part 1 video will start you off in the appropriate place.
Matthew Swartz, MSSW, LMSW is the Assistant Clinical Director at PCS-Counseling, where he has been working as a therapist in private practice for 5 years. Matt believes in making personal growth accessible to everyone. He is here to share the good news that our brain has built in healing and growth mechanisms that can help us manage our anxiety and stress when we understand how to use our brains well. He is passionate about helping people to discover their true selves and build their lives with intention.
